    So I started routing some chair parts today. See attached picture for the shavings and my jacket and hair. Does the Bosch RA1175 Edge Forming Dust Extraction Hood for 1613, 1617, 1619, and Mr23-Series Routers work. Does it get in the way? How about visibility? Any other options?

    I believe Brad @thedude306 has the Dust Extraction Hood on his MRC23. Maybe he will chime in.

    I’ve been pretty satisfied with the dust collection on my MR23. I’d guess it about 85% effective..which is better than acceptable, IMO. While there is a small amount of dust/chips, it is WAY better than routing without a vac.( cheap shop vac mind you…)

    Ok, Ron you got me on that, I lost most of my hair. The jacket went in the dryer and it did a pretty decent job of getting the sawdust off. It was really stupid wearing that jacket. It was kinda furry and just attracted the sawdust. No word on what the filter in the dryer looks like yet.

    Some sort of DC on any router is better than none at all. I think Brad also tried to modify his a bit because of it being a bit flimsy near the hose attachment area.

    Wasn’t that was on the colt router?

    Correct. He said that the weight of the hose caused the DC attachment to flex and allow dust to escape.

    I’ve got to say mine has been very good on the MRC23. I use a bigger hose 36mm I think with a Festool vac and only have a few larger shavings left. I have to run mine soon and will take better note of it and report back, but it was pretty decent from my memory, didn’t recall any flex issues but my hose would have been supported overhead.

    The flexing issue is on the colt DC shroud. The MR23 is much better about it but still flexes a bit.

    I’m actually more concerned with whether the hose restricts mobility or view, when working.

    It might, but there are ways to deal with that and limit the restriction.

    You can do as Dan did and make a hook to loop the hose and power cord over. This would help out a lot…or do like I do and toss the hose and cord over my shoulder! It’s not as pretty as Dan’s solution, but its effective.

    As for visibility… Try running the router without the vac first! You’ll welcome the little plastic shroud after trying to see through the cloud of sawdust!

    Embarrassing question guys – I cannot figure out how to attach the edge dust shroud to my router base. None of the holes line up. I am sure ai have used it in the past, but I mostly is the top shroud, which is easy to attach to the top near the rail holes

    Anyone have a pic of how to attach? Was machining dovetailed boxes with no DC and it was like being in a walnut blizzard. I was actually furry from the fibers

    This should help!

    I broke that piece a while back, but I recall the install being straight forward.

    Great idea guys Cause it takes all the weight of the router and dust collar so you get better results .

    Always willing to learn .
